  1. house fires cost US:
    $329 billion, or 2.1 percent of the US gross domestic product.
    US car accidents:
    “The economic and societal harm from motor vehicle crashes amounted to a whopping $871 billion in a single year, ”

    And if you did these for the world, it would also be pretty large numbers.

    In terms weather, floods and hurricanes are costly. And in in terms of climate these have not been increasing. And US is in a a many year “drought” in terms major hurricane making land fall.
    Or “global warming” seems to have reduced damages as compared not having “global warming”.
    And death from severe weather as been reduced due the industrial revolution and it’s result in improvement of technology.

    Or leaving the Little Ice Age, was a “good idea”, but it’s possible we will return to some kind like a little ice age in the future and focusing on CO2 emission is enormous waste of resources.
    If German had focused on lunar exploration program, instead of wind mills and solar energy and other nonsense related to lower CO2 emission [which they have failed miserably attempting] they would spent far less money and would gained much more global goodwill. [and they wouldn’t be the laughing stock of the world and be having all the EU problems].

  2. The damage to real science these political activists are causing is going to result in even greater damage to human civilization than a few cat 5 hurricanes.

  3. This has to be the greatest non-sequitur I’ve ever seen published in SciAm:

    “Weather events always occur, the question is are those events changing and what is the cause of that change?” said Steve Bowen, a Chicago-based meteorologist and director of Aon’s impact forecasting team. “The jury is still out as to how much you can quantify how climate change is affecting things monetarily. But especially since last year, we’re seeing a lot of these weather events influenced by a changing climate.”

    If you can’t quantify you can’t influence. Faith based science isn’t Science.
